Yeah I'm still giving my 11 month old DS rice cereal in addition to his breakfast because my ped said he isn't getting enough iron since he doesn't drink much formula. My other option was paying $10 for a box of vitamins.

I never heard of Earth's Best whole grain rice cereal. Do they sell it at regular grocery stores?
